Disambiguation link notification for June 3[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited The Perfect Storm (book), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Albert Johnston (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Lauriston S. Taylor[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Lauriston S. Taylor, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://hps.org/aboutthesociety/people/inmemoriam/LauristonTaylor.html.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details.

Copyright problems[edit]

Hello InfoDataMonger, I have drastically reduced Lauriston S. Taylor to remove all the material which you had copied virtually verbatim from this web page (copyright violation). Additionally, you did not credit the source (plagiarism). Please read the notice at Talk:Lauriston S. Taylor and take it on board. If you have created or substantially expanded other articles, please go back to them and ensure that they do not have the same problems. Best wishes, Voceditenore (talk) 10:14, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

InfoDataMonger, I'm finding some real problems with your articles. In addition to Lauriston S. Taylor (above):

  • I have removed material from James Newell Stannard which you had copied verbatim from here, again without attribution.
  • I rewrote sections of Harvey Society where you had pasted material verbatim without attribution from here and here
  • I removed an unencyclopedic sentence from Barnard Medal for Meritorious Service to Science but in fact you had copied that whole lead section without attribution from this. Even though that source had a free license, it is plagiarism to copy others' words verbatim without attribution.
  • Heinrich Mache appears to be an unattributed translation of the German Wikipedia article. I have now added an attribution notice to comply with our licensing requirements.

Below I'm going to put the standard warning and advice about copyright problems and plagiarism for new users. Please read it and all the associated pages, before creating any further articles. Please also go back now to the following articles which you have created or expanded, check them thoroughly for copyright infringement and plagiarism, and repair the damage: Roberts Rugh, National Radium Institute, American Radium Society, Henry Harrington Janeway, Leonidas D. Marinelli, Gioacchino Failla, Robley D. Evans (physicist), James Ewing (pathologist), and John D. Boice, Jr.. Voceditenore (talk) 17:09, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

  • I have also removed the material on your user page copied verbatim from here. That source is clearly marked ©2014 Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. You cannot place a copyright infringement anywhere on Wikipedia, including user pages. I'm sorry to have keep banging on about this, but I don't think you realize how seriously copyright infringement is taken on Wikipedia. If you don't slow down, take the advice on board, and repair the damage so far, you stand a very real chance of being blocked, which would be a great pity. Voceditenore (talk) 17:40, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
  • You also need to do something about the Establishment of the Barnard Medal for Meritorious Service to Science section at Barnard Medal for Meritorious Service to Science. It appears to be a mass of quotation, with very unclear marking of the quotes and very unclear attributions to the exact source or sources from which they come. If any of those sources are online, please add the link in the references. I very much doubt that you typed all that material by hand.Voceditenore (talk) 18:02, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Warning icon Hello InfoDataMonger, and welcome to Wikipedia. While we appreciate your contributing to Wikipedia, there are certain things you must keep in mind about using information from your sources to avoid copyright or plagiarism issues here.

  • You can only copy/translate a small amount of a source, and you must mark what you take as a direct quotation with double quotation marks (") and a cited source. You can read about this at Wikipedia:Non-free content in the sections on "text". See also Help:Referencing for beginners, for how to cite sources here.
  • Aside from limited quotation, you must put all information in your own words and structure, in proper paraphrase. Following the source's words too closely can create copyright problems, so it is not permitted here; see Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing. (There is a college-level introduction to paraphrase, with examples, hosted by the Online Writing Lab of Purdue.) Even when using your own words, you are still, however, asked to cite your sources to verify information and to demonstrate that the content is not original research.
  • Our primary policy on using copyrighted content is Wikipedia:Copyrights. You may also want to review Wikipedia:Copy-paste.
  • If you own the copyright to the source you want to copy or are a designated agent, you may be able to license that text so that we can publish it here. However, there are steps that must be taken to verify that license before you do. See Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials.
  • In very rare cases (that is, for sources that are public domain or compatibly licensed), it may be possible to include greater portions of a source text. However, please seek help at the help desk before adding such content to the article. 99.9% of sources may not be added in this way, so it is necessary to seek confirmation first. If you do confirm that a source is public domain or compatibly licensed, you will still need to provide full attribution; see Wikipedia:Plagiarism for the steps you need to follow.
  • Also note that Wikipedia articles may not be copied without attribution. If you want to copy from another Wikipedia project or article, you can, but please follow the steps in Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia.

It's very important that contributors understand and follow these practices, as policy requires that people who persistently do not must be blocked from editing. If you have any questions about this, you are welcome to leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. Voceditenore (talk) 17:09, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Copyright violation - Potential, needs my edits and updating[edit]

Stop hand nuvola.svg This is your final warning concerning your repeated insertion of copyright material into Wikipedia. Despite my warnings and explanations above, you have once again added the entire contents of this to your user page. I have removed it. The next time you add copyright material anywhere on Wikipedia, I will request that you be blocked. Voceditenore (talk) 12:22, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

Hello, I did not add anything NEW to the page you are referring to. I did add a correct Reference to the citation you recently mentioned.

  • Perhaps the learning curve is steeper than realized or noticed by myself.
  • Did not think that 'User page' was open to All;
  • Where is the best place to test pages before going 'Live' ? I have been using my User page to collect and edit info before I post to Wiki!
  • So, anything you see on my User page is as I state: Works in Progress.
  • You assistance is appreciated and your criticism is welcome, IF CONSTRUCTIVE!
Hi InfoDataMonger. Thanks for getting back to me. Yes, the learning curve is steep, and a lot of beginners make the same mistakes you've made. But is absolutely essential that you never paste material from copyright sources onto any page on Wikipedia, including your user pages and sandbox. It is also essential that you explicitly credit your actual sources. Failure to do so is plagiarism, even on the rare occasions when you are using text that is out of copyright. See my comments at Talk:Henry Harrington Janeway, for example. Here are some tips that I give new editors...
How to avoid close paraphrasing and copyright problems.
  • One of the best ways to avoid copyright violations (and to write a better article) is to use several sources rather than relying on a single reference work or web site.
  • If you do find material that you want to use or refer to, copy it into a word processing file (or draft email) completely off-wiki'. Never put it in your sandbox or any other Wikipedia user or draft space.
  • But don't take the material and then start changing a few words in it or moving the phrases around. First of all, this will almost always result in paraphrasing which is so close that it risks being a copyright infringement. Secondly, if you just change a word to a similar word, you risk distorting the meaning.
Do this instead...
  • Read the material. Digest it. Internalize it. Make sure you understand the outline of the subject well enough to explain it out loud to another person without looking at your sources.
  • Then make an outline of the facts only—no adjectives, no phrases, just the facts
  • Now attempt a draft of the topic, just using your outline, preferably after not having looked at the source material for a little while. This will force you to write it in your own words — it's just too easy to be tempted to copy the perfect phrases that are found in professionally written material.
  • Draft your article gradually rather than rushing to get it into Wikipedia. This approach will result in more interesting and coherent content. It also allows you the time to review your work carefully for potential copyright violations.
Hope that helps. Voceditenore (talk) 18:27, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Herbert Mermagen[edit]

Hello InfoDataMonger,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Herbert Mermagen for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. AlanS (talk) 02:47, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

July 2014[edit]

Please stop removing speedy deletion notices from pages that you have created yourself, as you did with Herbert Mermagen. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing. AlanS (talk) 03:02, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Roberts Rugh at microscope.png[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Roberts Rugh at microscope.png requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an image licensed as "for non-commercial use only," "non-derivative use" or "used with permission," it has not been shown to comply with the limited standards for the use of non-free content. [1], and it was either uploaded on or after 2005-05-19, or is not used in any articles. If you agree with the deletion, there is no need to do anything. If, however, you believe that this image may be retained on Wikipedia under one of the permitted conditions then:

  • state clearly the source of the image. If it has been copied from elsewhere on the web you should provide links to: the image itself, the page which uses it and the page which contains the license conditions.
  • add the relevant copyright tag.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

Thanks for creating John W. 'Jack' Healy, InfoDataMonger!

Wikipedia editor Animalparty just reviewed your page, and wrote this note for you:

Per WP:NCP, you should choose a single name (e.g. John Healy, Jack Healy, Jack W. Healy, etc.) and move the article to that name, rather than the somewhat awkward shoe-horning of a nickname.

To reply, leave a comment on Animalparty's talk page.

yes, User recognizes that there has been a prior warning before this action. Declare that several of the warnings were unfounded and generated by Bots.

Further, this User will make future edits and updates and page additions in compliance with Copyright rules if and when UNBLOCKED. This User will review these Copyright rules prior to uploading ANY images and will NOT upload images unless in the public domain, etc. This User again declares that some prior warnings were clearly unwarranted and in ERROR and the result of BOTS. For instance, simply because certain words are repeated in an edited and new page does not mean that material was directly copied. In many fields of knowledge it is necessary to REUSE terms appropriate to the topic. Otherwise to employ different or new Terminology would confuse the reader and detract from the topic. This User has good and honorable intentions to benefit the world of knowledge that Wiki strives to attain. This User commits to make all future edits and uploads in accordance with Wiki rules and guidelines. This User again requests additional and further guidance in an effort to become a better Wiki Editor and Contributor. Note that this User does not always have the opportunity to check the private email accounts (not professional email) that are generated by Wiki and Wiki Bots and has not intentionally ignored any prior messages. This User is not familiar with any timeliness requirement for responding to Wiki massages. Again, this User strives to increase and correct the present body of knowledge and add depth to those topics this User is expert in and familiar with. This User respectfully requests to be UNBLOCKED. InfoDataMonger (talk) 15:22, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

Decline reason:

You have previously been advised that your editing is problematic from a copyright standpoint, and requested to clean up the articles that had issues. You did not, and continued creating problematic articles. At the moment it is not at all clear that unblocking you would not result in further issues, especially as from the above you don't seem to understand that the onus is on you to understand English Wikipedia's copyright policies, regardless of what any other Wikis may or may not have as policy. Nothing is unclear about "don't violate copyright". The Bushranger One ping only 05:33, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

You are also blocked due to your lack of communication with other editors. To continue editing, you must demonstrate understanding of the copyright policy and undertake to clean up your edits and respond to concerns raised on this page. MER-C 06:42, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

This blocked user's unblock request has been reviewed by an administrator, who declined the request. Other administrators may also review this block, but should not override the decision without good reason (see the blocking policy). Do not remove this unblock review while you are blocked.

Request reason:

User has reviewed English Wiki copyright policies and will not violate same. The block is no longer necessary because this User understands what this User was blocked for, this User will not do it again, and this User will continue to make productive contributions instead and NOT contribute any material that violates English Wiki copyright policies. This User knows and realizes that errors were made in the past. This User wishes to move forward and contribute to English Wiki when UNBLOCKED. InfoDataMonger (talk) 17:37, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Decline reason:

Your unblock request is a little weird. Why can't you use the first person? Otherwise, you haven't addressed the comment by MER-C above. PhilKnight (talk) 07:03, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

{{unblock|Yes, and this User would sincerely like to thank you for these comments. I request to be UNBLOCKED. The block is no longer necessary because I understand why I was blocked for, I will not do it again, and I will make productive contributions in the future. I understand that I did not properly add the details of images I uploaded in the past and have learned the proper English Wiki policy to credite image sources. I will not make these mistakes again. I have REREAD the English Wiki Copyright policies and commit to not add any material to English Wiki that is in noncompliance with said policies of English Wiki. MerC comments have been taken into consideration and consultation to further increase MY knowledge of Copyright policies for English Wiki. This User, ME, uses the term 'this User' to be professional and remove the personal attribution. This is the professional way to communicate and more formal than the less formal first person pronoun common and unacceptable usage in the non-professional communications and literature. I hereby commit, both formally and in writing: to 'undertake to clean up your edits and respond to concerns raised on this page' (page?). I will clean up My edits (that have not been blocked, deleted or removed). I will demonstrate compliance and understanding of English Wiki copyright policies through my, this User, actions. I commit, both formally and in writing to maintain compliance with current English Wiki policies. I declare that I wish to further the Body of Knowledge that English Wiki is aiming for online. I commit to increase and maintain communication with other Wiki editors as necessary and upon request and inquiries, etc. Thank You for consideration of these comments, and requests to be UNBLOCKED.

Talk page access revoked[edit]

I've revoked talk page access as we don't seem to be getting anywhere. You can make a fresh unblock request by email. I suggest you carefully phrase your unblock request, and avoid using all caps, which can be misinterpreted as shouting. PhilKnight (talk) 14:07, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

Blocked indefinitely[edit]

Stop icon
You have been blocked indefinitely from editing for abuse of editing privileges. Your ability to edit your talk page has also been revoked. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you should read the guide to appealing blocks, then contact administrators by submitting a request to the Unblock Ticket Request System.  PhilKnight (talk) 14:07, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

2nd chance[edit]

This request for unblocking has been declined due to your history of vandalism and/or disruption to this encyclopedia. However, we are willing to give you another chance provided that you can earn back the trust of the Wikipedia community. To be unblocked you need to demonstrate that you are willing and able to contribute positively to Wikipedia. You can do this by:

  • Familiarizing yourself with our basic rules.
  • Read our guide to improving articles
  • Pick any pre-existing article you wish to improve.
  • Click the Edit tab at the top of that article and scroll down past the message informing you of your block.
  • Copy the source of that article and paste it to the bottom of your talk page under a new top-level heading (like this: = [[Article title]] =) and save the page before you improve it.
  • Propose some significant and well researched improvements to your article by editing your personal copy of the article. Please note that we are not looking for basic typo corrections, or small unreferenced additions; your edits should be substantial, and reflect relevant policies.
  • When you are done with your work, re-request unblocking and an administrator will review your proposed edits.
    • If we (including the original blocking admin) are convinced that your proposed edits will improve Wikipedia as an encyclopedia, you will be unblocked.

If you need help while working with your proposed edits, you may add "{{Help me|your question here ~~~~}}" to your talk page. Thank you. King of ♠ 00:14, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

I don't know how second chances work, and don't want to prejudice anybody's hopes of becoming a productive editor. But to choose one of your own copyright violations as the page for improvement seems to show a certain disregard for our copyright policy. The opening sentence here is copied almost word-for-word from the same source you took the rest of the article from, Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Society. I'm going to ask King of Hearts, PhilKnight and MER-C (with my apologies to all three) if they would take a look at this. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 01:56, 13 January 2015 (UTC)
Pinging MER-C again, messed it up first time round. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 01:58, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

Please allow me the chance to fix these errors. I did not realize that I needed to correct what you mentioned in the response to my request. I read the second chance information and did submit what I thought was expected of me. I can go back and rewrite what was found to be in violation. Let me make this right.

Speedy deletion nomination of Jack Healy (health physicist)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Jack Healy (health physicist) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article or image appears to be a clear copyright infringement. This article or image appears to be a direct copy from https://www.orau.org/ptp/Library/oralhistories/healy.pdf. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Non-free rationale for File:Harvey-Cushing-stamp.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Harvey-Cushing-stamp.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 16:00, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

[Shields Warren], second chance x2[edit]

Shields Warren (1898 – July 1980) was an American pathologist. He was among the first to study the pathology of radioactive fallout.[1][2][3]


Warren had an early career in the Army that ended when he succumbed to the 1918 flu pandemic. After the stint in the Army warren attended Harvard then on to Boston City College where he studied diabetes. During residency he became interested in Hodgkin’s disease and the effects from radiation used to treat the disease. After Pearl Harbor, Frank Lahey (physician) asked Warren to look into the pathology of burn treatment. Ross T. McIntyre[4], White House physician, Surgeon General of the Navy; asked Warren to assist with the establishment of blood banks for the Navy. After the Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Warren assisted Japanese physicians with treating Japanese atomic bomb survivors and his team performed the first fallout surveys. For Operation Crossroads Warren organized the animal studies that involved mice, rats, pigs and goats. He helped to influence the Atomic Energy Commission to establish five research centers and provide funding and encouragement from other AEC laboratories. Warren worked in diabetes research, and wrote the first of his nine text books, before he turned his attention to cancer research. Dr. Shields Warren died in his sleep at his summer home in Mashpee, Massachusetts on 1 July 1980. InfoDataMonger (talk) 17:01, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

Unblock request[edit]

  • Per Wiki guidelines and with guidance from Wiki editors and after considerable time to familiarize myself with Wiki policies and copyright requirements (and time to really think about all this) I request to be unblocked.
  • I do understand that material cannot be copied from a source and pasted on to the Wiki page for an article. Any material posted on Wiki must be in the editor’s own words and not merely rephrased. Any images posted on Wiki must be free of copyright restrictions, or used with permission or used giving proper credit for the source of the image. Images used on Wiki must meet the requirements of acceptable use. Content used must meet the rationale and policy requirements of Wikipedia.
  • I will choose to apply a simple rule of: “when in doubt, leave it out”. Failing this test, prior to posting material on wiki I will seek the advice of Wiki administrators for guidance and suggestions.
  • Please take a look at my Areas of Interest on my User Page. These are the subjects that I wish to contribute to Wiki. I see a great void in these subject areas and wish to make meaningful contributions to Wiki and to the knowledge base that Wikipedia strives for today. I do realize that in my effort to accomplish this quickly, I did not have sufficient knowledge or familiarity with Wiki policies and rules and guidelines to do this successfully. Now I know what is expected and most importantly, what is required.
  • Please consider my request to be unblocked. Thank you.

Unsorced category additions[edit]

I notice you have been adding "Category:Phi Kappa Phi" to a number of articles. I looked at three of those articles, and in two of them, Harry Reid and George Andrew Olah, Phi Kappa Phi isn't even mentioned in the article. Why are you adding the category then? Thank you.

Because you are an experienced editor I did not report this as vandalism yet. Please respond before making additional edits. Thank you again. Magnolia677 (talk) 23:47, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for your response on my talk page. You are correct that the additions I mentioned above have been removed, but that is because I removed them. There are still other articles you added this category to, and many of those may be incorrect, as there is no sourced mention of "Phi Kappa Phi" in the article, such as Loren Legarda. Do you plan to remove the category from each of the articles you added it to, in which there is no sourced mention in the article of Phi Kappa Phi? Thank you again.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 19:51, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Frank Styant Browne[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Frank Styant Browne requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. —teb728 t c 03:38, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

Few things[edit]

do you know how to archive your talk page - when people rather than messages arrive, it can be hard to negotiate long talk pages

Category:Worshipful Company of Spectacle Makers[edit]

Hello InfoDataMonger, I have reverted a few of your recent categorizations into that new category. Articles are usually only placed into a category, when the category is a defining characteristic of the article, or in other words, when the article is part of a distinct group defined by the category (but not the other way around). Some of the added articles didn't meet that requirement. Please see WP:Categorization#Articles for more information. Best regards. GermanJoe (talk) 17:28, 13 February 2016 (UTC)

Preview[edit]

Hey, thanks for editing Charles Thurstan Holland's article to add all those publications and citations. But please! Don't do this to the page history. Instead, use the Preview button and only save when you are satisfied with the results. Kind regards, —capmo (talk) 04:56, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

Draft:William Edward Nolan, Jr. concern[edit]

Hi there, I'm HasteurBot. I just wanted to let you know that Draft:William Edward Nolan, Jr., a page you created, has not been edited in 5 months. The Articles for Creation space is not an indefinite storage location for content that is not appropriate for articlespace.

If your submission is not edited soon, it could be nominated for deletion. If you would like to attempt to save it, you will need to improve it.

You may request Userfication of the content if it meets requirements.

If the deletion has already occured, instructions on how you may be able to retrieve it are available at WP:REFUND/G13.

Thank you for your attention. HasteurBot (talk) 01:31, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

Copying from sources[edit]

Hi! I've reverted your addition to Royal Variety Performance, as it included content copied from the website of the Royal Variety Charity. For example:

Your edit The source
In 1912, His Majesty King George V and Her Majesty Queen Mary agreed to attend a Royal Command Performance at the Palace Theatre at Cambridge Circus His Majesty King George V and Her Majesty Queen Mary agreed to attend a 'Royal Command Performance' at the Palace Theatre in London's Cambridge Circus

As it happens, the content of that webpage is freely licenced (I don't know if if you knew this?), so the copying is technically WP:PLAGIARISM rather than outright copyright violation. However, given your chequered history in this area, may I ask you to take much more care not to copy from sources? I see that Ritchie333 imposed strict conditions when unblocking you, so I think it would be wise to err well on the side of caution. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 10:53, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

Your draft article, Draft:William Edward Nolan, Jr.[edit]

Hello, InfoDataMonger. It has been over six months since you last edited your Articles for Creation draft article submission, "William Edward Nolan".

In accordance with our policy that Articles for Creation is not for the indefinite hosting of material deemed unsuitable for the encyclopedia mainspace, the draft has been nominated for deletion. If you plan on working on it further, or editing it to address the issues raised if it was declined, simply edit the submission and remove the {{db-afc}} or {{db-g13}} code.

If your submission has already been deleted by the time you get there, and you wish to retrieve it, you can request its undeletion by following the instructions at this link. An administrator will, in most cases, restore the submission so you can continue to work on it.

Thanks for your submission to Wikipedia, and happy editing. Puffin Let's talk! 11:06, 25 June 2016 (UTC)

Managing a conflict of interest[edit]

Information icon Hello, InfoDataMonger. We welcome your contributions, but if you have an external relationship with the people, places, or things you have written about on Wikipedia, you may have a conflict of interest (COI). Editors with a COI may be unduly influenced by their connection to the topic, and it is important when editing Wikipedia articles that such connections be completely transparent. See the conflict of interest guideline and FAQ for organizations for more information. In particular, we ask that you please:

  • avoid editing or creating articles related to you and your family, friends, school, company, club, or organization, as well as any competing companies' projects or products;
  • instead, you are encouraged to propose changes on the Talk pages of affected article(s) (see the {{request edit}} template);
  • when discussing affected articles, disclose your COI (see WP:DISCLOSE);
  • avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or to the website of your organization in other articles (see WP:SPAM);
  • exercise great caution so that you do not violate Wikipedia's content policies.

In addition, you must disclose your employer, client, and affiliation with respect to any contribution for which you receive, or expect to receive, compensation (see WP:PAID).

Please take a few moments to read and review Wikipedia's policies regarding conflicts of interest, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, sourcing and autobiographies. Thank you. Bilby (talk) 13:04, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

Hi again. It seems that you are still doing paid work with Goldfish (short film). I need to reiterate that Wikipedia accepts paid editing, but only if you disclose your client and that you are engaging in editing for pay. You can do that on the talk page of the article, in your edit summaries, or on your user page, but it is a requirement under the Terms of Use that you make that disclosure. - Bilby (talk) 02:04, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 22[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Todd Huston, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page North Face (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

File copyright problem with File:Shawn Kent Hayashi-1.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Shawn Kent Hayashi-1.jpg. However, it is currently missing information on its copyright and licensing status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can verify that it has an acceptable license status and a verifiable source. Please add this information by editing the image description page. You may refer to the image use policy to learn what files you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. The page on copyright tags may help you to find the correct tag to use for your file. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please also check any other files you may have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 08:29, 5 September 2016 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Shawn Kent Hayashi-1.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Shawn Kent Hayashi-1.jpg, which you've attributed to Elaine Zelker. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Majora (talk) 02:42, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

September 2016[edit]

Information icon Hello! Thank you for your recent contributions to Caia Koopman. I did have one note for you. I am working on a maintenance project to clean up Category:Pages using infoboxes with thumbnail images. In the future, please do not use thumbnails when adding images to an infobox (see WP:INFOBOXIMAGE). What does this mean? Well in the infobox, when you specify the image you wish to use, instead of doing it like this:

|image=[[File:SomeImage.jpg|thumb|Some image caption]]

Instead just supply the name of the image. So in this case you can simply do:

|image=SomeImage.jpg.

There will then be a separate parameter for the image caption such as |caption=Some image caption. Please note that this is a generic form message I am leaving on your page because you recently added a thumbnail to an infobox. The specific parameters for the image and caption may be different for the infobox you are using! Please consult the Template page for the infobox being used to see better documentation. Thanks!!

Proposed deletion of Shawn Kent Hayashi[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Shawn Kent Hayashi has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No evidence of reaching notability per WP:GNG, WP:NAUTHOR or WP:PROF. Extensive WP:REFBOMBing is largely trivial, passing or primary.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. David Gerard (talk) 12:04, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Joe Wein[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Joe Wein has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Promotional article that is heavily WP:REFBOMBed, but the references are mostly to the fact that things Wein is claimed to have worked on exist - almost none of the checkable refs even actually mention his name. Many are gratuitously unlinked (even when present online) to avoid checkability. There is a lot of attempting to show his association with notable projects, but notability is not inherited. This is WP:PUFFERY.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.
